Bohemian Waxwings still with us for a few more weeks.

Posted on Wednesday 25 March 2009




Mad Birder Tina Valentinetti got these great shots of Bohemian Waxwings in Montpelier, Vermont on March 5th.  The Bohemians are winter visitors and usually leave Vermont by the 3rd week in April, so we will have them around for only a few more weeks.  One can distinguish our resident Cedar Waxwings from our visiting Bohemians by looking at the overall size- Bohemians are slightly larger; the overall color- Bohemians appear more gray and Cedars have a rusty or “cedar” color), and plumage- the Bohemians have white and yellow wing markings, easily observed in the first photo.
